Seven shopping mistakes every woman makes.

Hello

Welcome back , if you’re new here I am glad you stopped by to click on this blog post , if you’re old here, then ….you don’t need to read this intro , I’m just trying to waste your time . Nah I’m not. Pointless.

So back on track..

So you love shopping ?

And you’re probably wondering , what kind of mistake would I possibly make ?

Well…they’re seven .

SHOPPING is just like a video game . You either win or lose . When you win ,you win with happiness and Joy ,but when you lose ,it feels like you’ve been poked with a needle on your behind.

How can I lose in shopping ?

Well….there are only two ways that can happen. You could either waste a lot of money on something you don’t like or go broke for months buying the wrong set of clothes.

No stress. These are all mistakes. Mistakes I hope you never make again after reading this.

What you need to know first ; You think with your heart and not your head.

Let’s look at shopping like the two sides of a coin. You either land on the head or on the tail.

Here’s an instance ; Girl named Shane wants to look like Mary Jane, so she dresses like her, shop whatever she shops ,making her look partly insane because she lost a lot of money on something she couldn’t maintain .

You see,Shane thought with her heart and not her head, she was filled with the want to look like Mary Jane that she forgot that money was on the line ,so was herself.

How can I think with my head when it comes to shopping ?

There are two things you should always have in mind when shopping.

  • Cost
  • The item you want to buy.

See,super easy . If you know the item you want to buy and the cost ,then you won’t make the same mistake Shane made.

Number two ; You keep forgetting that shopping isn’t meant to be excessive.

I want that bag.

That shoe.

Maybe the dress on the left ?

Are those high knee boots ? , can I get that ?

Can I get the latest release from Dolce and Gabbanna ?

Wait,all of that in one day ?

What’s the bill ?

If you shop like that , you must be earning a six-figure every month ,because all of that is too much.

Why people shop excessively ?

  • Self satisfaction
  • Not knowing what they wan to buy
  • Greed
  • Probably a shopaholic

How can I quit excessive shopping ?

  • Try finding your own signature style
  • Make a shopping list containing all the things you want to buy
  • Have a well planned budget

If you have all these three, you’ll go into any clothing store and come out with the perfect clothes.

Number three ; You try to shop in a hurry

Sometimes when I go shopping with my Dad,we always try to shop everything at once , because we don’t know when we’ll have the time to do more shopping .

At the end of the day, we ended up picking great clothes and stuff ,but most of them were things that when we looked back and saw , we’ll both be like ” I wish I hadn’t picked this ”

Shopping in a hurry or shopping when it’s not the right time can be one of your biggest mistakes .

You could pick the wrong outfits , spend a lot of money and have your self in a total mess.

Why don’t you shop when you’re ready , relax , take a deep breath and shop like no one’s watching.

Totally Awesome.

Number four ; You shop for unnecessary things

Have you ever had this feeling that what you’re picking isn’t what you really need ?

If you said YES , then it’s completely normal for everyone.

You pick a blue dress , then you pick a red dress too.

See, totally normal and this takes us to the next thing.

Number five : You lack a shopping list and If you have one ,you probably can’t stick to it .

Are you a shopaholic ?

Do you love to shop even when you don’t need to ?

If you’re like that,then your biggest problem is not having a shopping list .

I know sticking to schedules, rules or a list of things can be difficult because sometimes you just want to squeeze that paper and throw it into the trash.

Don’t worry ,been there ,done that . It’s normal for a shopaholic because you just can’t stick to shopping what’s on the list.

How can I stop this ?

Well…there’s only one way that can work .

DON’T SHOP AT ALL ALONE

Yeah,shopping alone is nice if you don’t like company and all. But girl,if you’re a shopaholic then you need to have a couple of non-shopaholic friends that can help you control the amount of things you buy.

Helpful, right ?

Number six ; You don’t shop for comfort.

There’s not much to say here.

There are two types of people when it comes to shopping.

  • The people that shop for comfort and what they like.
  • The people that shop according to trends.

If you’re that type of person that shops for comfort , then you really know what you want.

If you’re the second person ,then you’ve probably not found your own style and I’m sure you’ll find it soon .

Number seven ; You don’t shop for the nearest future.

Someone said she was spending $5000 dollars on an outfit she was only going to wear once….I said ONCE.

Tsk…tsk…tsk

Why are you buying it anyway ?

If you’re only going to wear it once , then you must be ready to do more shopping than usual , unless you’re the Kardashians ,then I’m not going to say anything….definitely not going to say anything.

If you can’t maintain the “wear once and that’s the end “ lifestyle , then don’t DO it .

Look at how much you have, how much you’re willing to spend. If it’s less than the outfit you want to buy , then don’t buy it.

Look for more affordable clothes , that are long lasting and bam! , you just hit a gold mine. Pointless again.

Thanks for reading !

Can’t wait to see you next week , by the way I’m here to help.

10 Secrets to finding the perfect evening gown

Hello

Welcome back , if you’re new here I am glad you stopped by to click on this blog post , if you’re old here, then ….you don’t need to read this intro , I’m just trying to waste your time . Nah I’m not. Pointless.

So back on track..

So today i’m going to be talking about the top ten secrets to finding the perfect evening dress .

Finding an evening dress to wear on a nice ,romantic date or even a social gathering can be extremely easy , (or is it ?)

What you must know first ; Try looking for something simple but classy .

I know people would go as far as trying to look like Lady Gaga or Nicki minaj . The truth is that none of that matters .

Standing out with simplicity makes it so much easier to feel like yourself and feel like you’re in your own comfort zone ,but well that depends on you .

Number two : Dress to impress and don’t dress to depress

I know we all want to go out there and look like we just stepped out of a runway , but dressing to impress means making use of all those little ,tiny accessories , styling yourself -your hair , face and even getting rid of those leg hairs – that can make you stand out.

That’s where “standing out” comes to play .

What’s your favorite accessory ?

Does it match your outfit ?

Try the “dress to impress” and see the magic.

Number three : Know the occasion like the back of your palm.

Knowing the occasion means why you’re there and what you came to do.
Is it a date ?

A party ?

An award show ?

Or just a dinner party for the richy-rich ?

Knowing the occasion would really help you find the perfect dress.
I know that people would say that you can wear anything to a social gathering and they’ll be like “Anything looks good” . But No, you have to know how to dress for the occasion ,else you’ll be looking off.

I know no one wants that ,right ?

Here is a perfect evening gown you can wear to a romantic dinner. {Photo from Pinterest @PROMGIRL}

Red screams Love{我爱你} in china and I know you want to scream “My dress looks like a bomb at this party } . Pointless again.

Number four ; Cost comes first so does your thirst

I know that people would say that the reason they can’t pick a new dress is because they can’t afford the most expensive (that they think it’s the most ‘everything’ )

Your thirst could be a nice evening gown that’s boldly inspired by ‘animal prints ‘

What do I do ? It’s expensive , I don’t want to spend much anyway.

The truth is , you don’t have to spend much .

There are many online stores that have cheap but high quality dresses , you could still look like Angelina Jolie while rocking that leopard dress.

Number five ; Picture the dress on YOU and not the imaginative version of you .

That ‘you’ has a lot of emphasis on it , like a lot of it .

As women , we always picture that beautiful woman with killer bomb figure on that dress you’ve been sighting for like two weeks now.

You don’t look like that ,girl.

It looks pretty on her but there’s a slim chance that it’ll look pretty on you .

How can I picture this dress on ME ?

There are many ways to do that ,but I’m only giving out two very simple ones.

#1 – Try studying the dress , how it looks like , and most importantly , if it fits your body type.

#2 – Ask questions ; Ask the salesclerk. All you have to do is talk,talk,talk .How hard can that be ? , unless you’re an introvert like me ,then you can go with the 1 magic sentence “Do you think this dress would look great on me ?” Ha! Let’s see who can’t answer that .

Number six ; Try going for neutral colours (if you don’t have any color idea in mind)

Well…this is probably something everyone should know .

A TOTALLY MADE-UP DIALOGUE

Mace ; I don’t know what color to wear

Shyne : Have you tried white or Black ?

Neutral colors are total life savers , this is a big secret, well not really.

Number seven ; Try turning ‘Ugly’ into ‘dashing’

How can I do that ?

There’s no way I can turn my grandma clothes into a fashion worthy outfit inspo .

Yeah you can , I wrote a blog post on the things women can’t do without.

You can style your clothes into amazing things. If you’ve never heard of the famous fashion blogger ; fashionflux . She has helped a lot of people look like they just stepped out of a runway show . How cool is that ?

Number eight ; Online shopping shouldn’t be your number one choice .

Weird, but true.

Online shopping can be very risky at times. Because , you might pick the wrong size , maybe something smaller or bigger and you end up wasting money.

Try shopping and filling your hands with those shopping bags , you can pick the right dress and even do try outs before actually purchasing them.

Smart move.

Number nine : Finding your own style

Most difficult of them all ,and one of the most important .

Finding your style is like finding yourself ,who you truly are and how you want to be seen out in public.

Why do I need to find my style ?

#1- It makes you stand out

#2-Choosing outfits become less difficult ,because you always know what you have in mind.

#3-You wouldn’t be reading this right now

You + Style = Totally awesome outfits .

Number ten ; Not really a secret but tonnes of evening gown inspirations for those that need it.

By the way,I’m here to help.

How to take care of your skin (Effective skin care tips)

How to take care of your skin

Hearing people say that the hardest thing they’ve ever tried to do is trying to achieve a healthy and glowy skin made me want to go into the topic .

Is achieving a healthy skin impossible ?

The answer to that is obviously NO. Today I’ll do the honour of telling you a lot about your skin and what you’re not doing to achieve it. Hurry ! , cause this is important stuff.

Why you can’t keep your skin smooth and clear ?

Here’s the reason :

1. You probably don’t have a skincare routine

I’m not the type of person to keep to a routine or schedule or have my day activities written down on a piece of paper. Sometimes it helps but if you’re like me and suck so bad at it then there’s a reason you don’t have one. But if you’re a stick-to-schedule kind of person then you should have a skin care routine plan .

Your skin care routine can consist of daily , weekly and monthly skin care course of actions you can stick to.

Looking for a chart that has all the answers to your problem ?

No stress , cause i have found the most effective but simple skin care routine chart.

{Photo gotten from Pinterest}

2.You ignore signs of skin problems

Having an itch on your skin ?

Or a slight irritation ?

Your answer might be YES or NO . If you said YES then you’ve been avoiding this (If I’m wrong) obvious problem or probably ignoring those tiny signs that say you have staphylococcus aureus (a bacteria responsible for some of the bacterial skin infection )

Then what are you doing about these signs ?

Once you notice any sign of a bacterial skin infection , try visiting the doctor , they can recommend good treatments to help your skin and make it better .

3. You don’t wash your face properly ….one of the reasons why you might suffer acne (commonly found in teenagers )

What’s Acne ?

Ever had those bumps , pimples , white heads and black heads ? If you have , that’s a sure sign of acne or let me say that you have ACNE.

How did I get Acne ?

Don’t get me wrong but having acne doesn’t mean you got it from someone or somewhere , or you’re not taking proper care of your face. You might follow a skin care routine effectively and still have acne .

Why ?

1. It’s genetic. If you have parents that once had acne when they were young , so there is a chance that you’ll have one too. But no worries , hitting puberty stirs up a lot of hormones responsible for this but you’ll be free from acne once you’re older.

What can I do about Acne ?

To help prevent the building up of oil on your skin you can as well :

1. Wash your face with mild soap (one that your skin accepts and doesn’t cause any form of irritation)

2.Avoid using force on your face to get rid of acne. For example : Trying to scrub acne away with a sponge , FYI that can never work .

3.If you wear makeup , try spending time to actually wash all your makeup off , some makeup products actually clog the pores of your skin and can cause acne.

4.Abstain from oil products ( If your skin has a bad reaction towards it )

That’s all about your skin . Well…that’s the most important and effective way of taking care of your skin. Try a good skin care routine , wash your face properly , follow the steps to prevent acne . If you read this , I hope it helped you , cause everyone deserves a healthy and glowing skin.

Plus sized

How to dress when you’re overweight (What not to wear)

Hello ? Um..miss, I don’t think that’s your size , sounds familiar ?.
Yeah, definitely . Ever seen a pretty dress on a mannequin and you want to wear it so bad ,but guess what ? , it’s not the right size , it doesn’t fit , it’s too tight , too revealing and the next question is …would I ever the see the right one for me ?. All of these are because you are looking at the WRONG clothes . Yes, I said wrong , and you shouldn’t wear any of that .

Today , to whoever is reading this , I’ll help you change your outfit from unsuitable outfits for your body type to Hella sexy , boss lady like outfits that can boost your confidence . Are you ready ? Cause I have a lot .

Things you should avoid :

1. Oversized jeans ; Weird right ? Shouldn’t I be wearing something to hide how big my legs are ? The answer is No . Wearing an OVERSIZED JEANS makes you look bigger in the lower region , this means your thighs look 2 times bigger than they normally are and you don’t want that , do you ?. Try wearing slightly fitted jeans, to help your legs look trim and longer. Perfect right ?

2. Flats ; Try heels instead , Heels make you look taller , thereby making your legs appear trimmer than normal , Try this and see for yourself .

3.Tight fitting shirts ; Wearing tight fitting shirts on your body makes things worse because your upper body holds a lot of fat , especially at the stomach region , and this makes you look ROUND. Try wearing something loose , something that can make your belly and back fat less noticeable.

4.Horizontal stripes ; Ever heard that horizontal stripes make you look fat ? Yeah ,they do and it should be the number one thing on your list this year to get rid off .

Looking for a dress ?
Some set of pants ?
A jumpsuit ?

Don’t go looking for any of these mentioned above if it has a horizontal stripe on it ?

Why ?

1.It makes you look overweight than normal.
2.It makes you look round
3.It makes you look shorter

I call this the FRS (Fat ,round and short ). Keep this acronym at the back of your mind whenever you go shopping . No one wants to look FRS.

5. Short sleeves : Short sleeves are nice,Yes,but not when your arm makes you look like you squeezed yourself into the shirt.

Looking for a nice suitable shirt ?

One that will make you feel comfortable ?

Try a long sleeved one.

Why ?

1. It makes your arm look longer
2. It gives this impression that you’re taller than you normally are.

Still think I’m wrong ?

Feel free to correct me .

6. Very plain clothes {with no patterns } ;
There’s this feeling you get when you see a ; Black flowered – designed T-shirt and just an ordinary T-shirt .

1. The designed ones are distracting and this draws the viewers attention from your body shape and size to your outfit.

2. It makes you look nice without even trying .

Nice,right ?

If you found this helpful , that would make me happy. Thanks for reading .

WHY YOU MUST HAVE THESE ITEMS THIS WINTER

brrr….the fog is showing up in the sky, the weather just got chilly and those white flakes are clearly filling up your backyard…and you can just smell the cold air, it’s winter and guess what? ,you don’t know the essential things to have this season, well… I’ve come to help, with this list,you can get your winter game on .

1.Beanie
I don’t know how much I need to keep stressing on this but every one needs a beanie this winter, not just only women, the both genders to be specific. This head wear can protect your head from the cold and there by keeping your head warm and cozy and preventing those beautiful snow flakes from leaving deposits on your hair, making you spend two to three hours getting them off with your hands 😥 .

Did you know that a beanie could keep your body warm? It can even reduce the amount of heat that comes out of your head, you probably didn’t know that right? . So go grab a beanie from your near by clothing store or you could just shop online like me through Amazon.

Geeky corner : Does a beanie reduce the amount of body heat in the body?
Answer : Yes, it does .

Amazon price range : $2.99 – $21.99 [not fixed]

2.Handgloves
Everybody should know that this winter essential is going to be very necessary during the winter, ranging from different styles ,designs and patterns . Hand gloves come in handy during winter, well…everyone that lives in a place that snows should know that ,ever had your hand frozen before?
Your answer would probably be NO! but we do need hand gloves, hand gloves could be traditional, mechanical or even our general work hand gloves. During cold seasons, you should probably go for a more effective hand glove that can fight cold, offer valid protection and can be used for your day to day activities without making our hands feel weird… Like who wants that?

You can get a hand glove anywhere ,your near by clothing store or even online, that’s why we have Amazon duh. So get your dusty hand gloves from your drawer and send them to the dry cleaners…remember Hygiene first.

Geeky corner : Are fingerless hand gloves good during the winter?
Answer : No, in fact they are best not worn during the winter, the essence of a hand glove during winter is to keel your fingers and palm warm and not expose your fingers.

Amazon price range : $7.99 – $24,99 [not fixed ]

3.Svarves
Don’t tell me that you didn’t get a scarf this winter?…. Cause you’re about to read this breathtaking news, did you know that more than 26 million Americans suffer from asthma and that is 8.3% adults and 8.3% children according to asthma statistics. And not wearing a scarf could trigger an asthma attack.

The best way to wear a scarf is by wearing it loosely over our nose and mouth so that it can make the air you breathe in warm .

Those warm ,beautiful ,colorful, (sometimes patterned) ,material you tie around your neck that makes you feel warm… So so warm , happens to be one of your winter essentials, you might not know how important a scarf is until your neck starts to freeze .

Geeky corner : Can scarves be used as a modern sense of style during the winter?
Answer : Yes, it can, in fact a scarf completes your outfit during the winter.

Amazon price range : $4.20 – $19.99 [not fixed ]

4.Socks
Why would I need a sock during winter?, the question you should be asking is ‘Do you need a sock during winter? ‘ ,the answer is yes, You need a sock during winter .

A pair of socks has its own benefits , it can keep your feet warm and prevent health issues from forming and can also prevent the growth of bacteria. How great is that? , What are your thoughts about socks now?

I know it looks so little and everyone is probably going to forget to put this in their packing bag, but socks come in handy especially during cold evenings, or when you want to go to bed, and your feets are just so cold and your blanket is not doing any good. You can get a pair of really long socks at an affordable price .

Geeky corner : Is our feet one of the part of our bodies that sweat a lot.
Answer : Yes, it is, that’s why it’s open to bacterial and fungal infections.

Amazon price range : $9.70 – $33.99 [not fixed]

5. Warm jacket / Coat
People usually ask; what is the warmest material for a warm coat / jacket?. The answer is Wool. A wool coat is a very good material during the winter, it’s not just it’s ability to keep your body warm during the cold weathers that makes it great but to keep you warm even when WET, how cool is that?
I know most people would not like wool coats, because it can be uncomfortably hot sometimes or even scratchy… I get that, That’s why we have FLEECE.

Fleece is a material which I would highly recommend for anyone, it’s incredibly soft and much more better than wool, no more scratchy days for you anymore. Which do you prefer ; A warm coat or a warm jacket

Geeky corner : How do coats keep us warm?
Answer : They keep us warm due to fillings inside them.

Amazon price range : $6.99 – $269 [not fixed ]

6. Thermal underwear
If you’re reading this , you probably don’t know what a thermal underwear is or you’ve heard it from somewhere or you probably even own one, who knows?.

Well, a thermal underwear is called a thermal underwear because it can be worn over the skin just like your normal underwear and is known for its comfort and warmth. Totally suitable for winter. Don’t ya think?

Geeky corner :Ever wondered the best material for a thermal underwear?
Answer : The best material for a thermal under wear is a ‹synthetic fabric›

Amazon price range : $16.99 – $112 [not fixed ]

7.Sweater
One of the greatest thing to have during the winter is a nice sweater. A sweater is known to be traditionally made from wool but now sweaters can now exist in different forms such as cotton, synthetic fibres, etc.

Geeky corner : Can you wear a T-shirt under a sweater as an undershirt?
Answer : Yes you can ,it can be your very own style this winter.

Amazon price range : $18.99 – $25.99 [not fixed ]

8. Winter boots
Obviously a winter boot is made for warmth. And yes, you should probably consider warmth when picking a winter boot. Winter boots usually have thermal materials that make your feet warm, I guess that’s why they are so comfy inside. Is your wardrobe lacking this winter essential? I hope not. Hurry and get it now before it is too late.

Amazon price range : $16.88 – $161 [not fixed]

9.Sunglasses
Ever wondered why you need sunglasses during the winter? No?, well… don’t stress, sunglasses are actually very important during the winter, even though it is mostly worn during the summer, on very hot days or at the beach…Sunglasses prevent ultraviolet rays from the sun from entering our eyes.

According to Dr. Brand he says

First exposure to ultra violet rays damages your cornea

Sunglasses also help to reduce glare, how ?. Very bright reflection of light can cause glare which can lead to vision impairment and did you know that glare is very dangerous while driving and skiing?…. totally not safe to drive without a pair of sunglasses during the winter.

Geeky corner : Can sunglasses reduce headache
Answer : Our pupils constrict to reduce light exposure due to extremely bright conditions (especially during the summer) .The pupils cannot constrict enough to reduce the amount of light entering our eyes, so we squint. Squinting our eyes for a long time can lead to headache.

Amazon price range : $19.38 – $31.87 [not fixed]
